Hi, Welcome to Singapore! I’m sure you will love it here, being an expat myself the biggest shock I got was that I had to do my utilities account after I found a HDB for rent in Singapore.

Thanks Betsy for such a full info article about tips for living in Singapore. what I dislike most about living in Singapore is driving. There are unusually high numbers of traffic lights everywhere, and these can be relatively frustrating for impatient people like me.
